Lida's story

Lida, age 42, is a hard-working, enterprising, cheerful, and very charismatic woman. Fernando is her life partner, and they have four children, Fernando, Brandon, Jordán, and Emily, ages 20, 16, 11, and 3. They have their own house, which they managed to buy with a lot of effort. She sells varied merchandise like sheets, towels, clothes, handicrafts, and perfume, among others. She has been doing this from home for over ten years. She started with her own capital as she saw the need for an additional income. She likes her business because it allows her to be in the comfort of her home, tend to her children, and to have free time for other activities. The bad part is having to walk several hours a day selling her products, but this does not discourage her. This is her third loan with MFP, and she hopes to continue with her objectives. She likes the work her communal bank is doing, supporting people to advance in their businesses. She will use the requested 2,000 soles to buy various merchandise (towels, sheets, cloths, and sandals), looking to get low prices for buying in bulk.
